On the personal side

Favorite movie or book: Out of Africa and Amadeus. Books written by Peter Mayle and David McCullough

Other interests: Football (esp. Denver Broncos), cooking, gardening and taking a vacation more often than every 10 years. But there is really no time to do anything but horses and housekeeping

Horse treat I’m most likely to eat myself: Peppermints and the candy orange slices Carole brings for her horse Salut
